Angsty & Tough! Breaking the Rules by Katie McGarry [Book Review]

Angsty & Tough! Breaking the Rules by Katie McGarry [Book Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   I had a hard time finishing Breaking the Rules. In fact, I was contemplating on DNFing the thing, but I hit a chapter where the story captivated me. See, I’m not a fan of YA contemporary romance since they’re just too young for me (I know it’s a YA book) but Pushing the Limits was so good, I decided to read Echo and Noah story. This is the in-between story of what happened after they finished high school and before the events of the second […]

Hot Damn! Crossing the Line Series by Tessa Bailey [Audiobook Review]

Hot Damn! Crossing the Line Series by Tessa Bailey [Audiobook Review]

Hot damn, the Crossing the Line series was awesome overall! I actually binge-listened this series (not in order, mind you) and it was good. Overall, I gave this series 4/5 hearts, but each individual book has a rating range of 3-4 hearts. The Crossing the Line series has a 60-40 balance between suspense and romance, where romance gets the largest chunk of each of the books. This is exactly what I love! I do wish there was more action in the books, though. Also, I love all the female heroes are unique in their own way, kick-ass and have baggage! It’s refreshing since […]

Music & Romance | Roomies by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

Music & Romance | Roomies by Christina Lauren [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I wasn’t expecting much from Roomies. To be honest, based on the first couple of chapters that I read last year, it didn’t feel like the usual Christina Lauren book that I expected. Fast-forward to last month and I was broken! I picked up the audiobook last month and I was able to get through the first few chapters! Before I knew it, I was hooked, even though Roomies read like women’s fiction than a contemporary romance. Not that there is anything wrong with women’s fiction, it’s just […]

There’s an adorable dog! Plus an alpha male and sexy times! Follow by Tessa Bailey [Audiobook Review]

There’s an adorable dog! Plus an alpha male and sexy times! Follow by Tessa Bailey [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. If you have been stalking me on social media, you will know that Follow is the first book that started my Tessa Bailey binge in the last couple of months. Why? Because Tessa Bailey is AMAZING! Follow took me by surprise. I actually picked this book up when it was recommended in one of my book club groups and I immediately went to check the library if it was available. It was! And I didn’t regret my decision. What I love about Follow is that this features a heroine who is not […]

It was a little underwhelming | Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu [Audiobook Review]

It was a little underwhelming | Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Batman: Nightwalker was very interesting. I am not an avid comic book or graphic novel reader, so this book was interesting. I have watched quite a bit of Batman animated movies, so I think I know a little bit of Batman facts. I was expecting to be blown away by Batman: Nightwalker, but I wasn’t. It was surprising to me at least. We get to see a teen Bruce Wayne before he had control of his company. We also meet his friends, Diana (who is Filipina, by […]

Meh… Lazy Son by Eve Langlais [Book Review]

Meh… Lazy Son by Eve Langlais [Book Review]

  I picked up Lazy Son by Eve Langlais by chance when I saw the cover of the second book Jilted Prince, and thought that the blurb was interesting. I don’t exactly know what to say about Lazy Son because this was a bit of a mess? Crazysauce? The premise is this: Christopher is the antichrist and is the son of Lucifer but Lucifer doesn’t really know that this son exists because apparently Lucifer only has daughters? And then the heroine Isobel, is a witch that doesn’t really have powers but is the granddaughter or Rasputin? Yeah, THE Rasputin! But when […]

Oh, the Nostalgia! Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson [Audiobook Review]

Oh, the Nostalgia! Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson [Audiobook Review]

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. This is my first Rachel Gibson book and I was charmed! Simply Irresistible by Rachel Gibson had all the pop culture references which was full of nostalgia and OMG! I love it! It is pretty obvious that Simply Irresistible was published in 1998. But as much as it felt dated, it still stands the test of time in my opinion. It’s just that I am a little bit used to romances with a higher steam factor. The Characters are AMAZING This is probably one of the […]

What an Emotional Rollercoaster! Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai [Audiobook Review]

What an Emotional Rollercoaster! Hate to Want You by Alisha Rai [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   Hate to Want You is the first book by Alisha Rai that I read and it won’t be my last! You can say that this book has a lot of drama and it was a bit over the top but still so good! The story picks up 10 years after all the drama and scandal of both the Oka-Kane and Chandler families. This is a classic Romeo and Juliet story about warring families only it ends with an HEA. I’m a sucker for second-chance romance […]

A Well Earned HEA! Be with Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audiobook Review]

A Well Earned HEA! Be with Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. Remember that time when I was binge-reading Jennifer L. Armentrout? Well, this book really surprised me in a good way because of the twist in the end! I will not be revealing the twist because I actually loved the way it was revealed to Teresa because that was also the time that it was revealed to the reader. Although, I knew the twist by the second chapter. Yes, it was that glaring to me but maybe because it hit a little bit closer to home for […]
